Comments about 822 Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams Wilderness Areas, Gifford-Pinchot National Forest Trail Map:
I bought this map for a climb of Mt. Adams, but the map only shows a portion of the mountain. Unfortunately, the map-maker decided to add a "sidebar" in place of showing the eastern side of the mountain. There are various other "sidebars" scattered throughout the map- almost always in places on the map where you expect to see a map- you know- topo lines, roads, etc. the sidebars all seem to have interesting and pertinent information, but I thought I was buying a map- not a foldable guidebook.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
